The names says it all .. or does it? Or maybe it scares you a bit? I’m Helga, Burpee Lover, Turtle Spirit Animal, Boston Native and Avid Traveler navigating the complexities of balancing a healthy, happy, and rewarding life in todays stressful culture.
I struggled for years trying to find that balance and it was evident in my body (I’ve ranged from sizes 2 all the way to 12), my energy, my mood, and my discontent with myself, my appearance, my life and my everything TBH. I felt like I was just going through the motions of life with no real purpose or internal happiness.
Through my struggles fitness became my therapy; time I could shut off everything and come out feeling mentally recharged. I drowned myself in it only to realize (after I hit a number on the scale I had been aiming for) fitness is just one piece of the puzzle of wellness and happiness. Until I found harmony among my mental, nutritional, social and physical counterparts I couldn’t feel or be the best version of myself.
In the last couple of years especially 2021 I underwent a journey of exponential growth and re-birth a sense of purpose and direction while gaining pure confidence, happiness, harmony and peace.
